The Story behind the Phonics Discs Sets

I started following Lothian Woodworks on Instagram because I saw a link to their beautiful ‘leaf identification’ resources. When they added a new product – ABC  tiles – it got me thinking. I am not shy at randomly approaching people and saying, “Hey, have you thought about doing this…?” Which is exactly what I did! So, we collaborated on producing the sets – I did the phonics and Moray did the design and manufacture.

I am receiving no financial gain from this product. I had great fun developing the sets with Moray and am happy to be helping a small family business in these difficult and unprecedented times. I hope these will be a useful addition to your phonics resources.
